Top Mechanical Engineering Trends to Watch Out for in 2020

Posted on November 15, 2019

Focusing on the new era in technology, mechanical engineers are being offered new subjects as well as new and better versions of their previous subjects. Several technologies that are emerging are falling fundamentally under the domain of the expertise of mechanical engineers. Modern mechanical engineers can navigate virtual designs and have expertise in adapting to computing.

Some of the top trends for Mechanical Engineering students that have been listed out, so that the students can get the knowledge on the latest topics in this field. Some of them are listed below:

  • Digital Manufacturing
  • 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing)
  • Interconnected Machines
  • Nano-Technology
  • 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing)
  • Internet of Things
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Mechatronics
  • Robotics
  • Automation and Intelligent System
  • 3D Printing (Additive Manufacturing)
  • CAD-CAM Sustainability

Some of the key trends which will rule the mechanical engineering industry in the coming years are listed below:

  • 3D Printing
    Additive Manufacturing, also known as 3D Printing is simply the addition of the material for creating a 3D effect. It is a complex process where the object’s model has to be created using the CAD Software which is basically a modeling software and further has to be saved in the STL format.

    This format mainly “slices” the given object into layers that are ultra-thin. Each successive layer is bonded to the layer preceding it, in which the material is melted partially or completely melted. This particular file then has to be transferred to the 3D Printing Machine for the production of a 3D object converted into the formation of fine layers.

  • Nanotechnology
    Nanotechnology is also known as nanotech, is the manipulation of matter into molecular, atomic or supramolecular scale. The National Nanotechnology Initiative has stated nanotechnology as the manipulation of matter in which a minimum of one dimension is sized from 1 to 100 nanometers. This definition helps in understanding the importance of mechanical effects on the quantum-realm scale. Nanotechnology also helps in the creation of new devices and materials with a vast number of applications.
  • Internet of Things (IoT)
    The Internet of Things(IoT) is a system in which computing devices are interrelated, along with digital and mechanical machines, animals, objects or people that are provided with identifications that are unique and the ability to transfer data over a network without the requirement of human-to-computer or even human-to-human interactions. Internet of Things has evolved in the last couple of years due to the evolvement in multiple technologies. Internet of Things is most popular with products that pertain to the idea of smart homes.
